Great deal after 2:30 pm with lots of half-priced "happy hour" items. We had the steak tartare, escargot, charcuterie board, truffle and mushroom mussels, the roasted artichoke, and sangria all for less than $60. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the outdoor dining felt very safe. Bring a light jacket if it's windy.

Great happy hour-- the wines were actually fantastic. The mussels were really disappointing. Outdoor setup is overall really wonderful and I'll be back

The food was fairly good, especially for the price. However, the service was really slow. I'm sure they have added more outside tables to make up for Covid revenue loss, but doesn't feel like they have the staff to cover that volume of customers. It took 90 mins to get our mains.

Went with 3 friends and we had a great time, the food was good and cheap for what you got. And can’t complain about $10 mussels and $6 (happy hour) wine
Outside dining is predominantly at high tables and the tables are tiny, so don’t order too much food or ask for another table to be pulled over. At first, we were told nothing could be done but once the owner came around we got the extra table so our food would fit. We’d probably come again

Meet in Paris is great for happy hour, just tricky to catch it on time. And if you do, you have to rush typically to get the all you can eat or bottomless champagne before you're cut off!
Staff attention could have been better but the food was great. The steak was cooked just right and the mussels were tasty (do NOT get the name sake Meet in Paris sauce - NOT good).
Wish they would figure out a standard happy hour rather than early vs. late, days of only certain specials, etc. It's too much to keep up with and frankly one of the reasons I don't go here often; if I want a well priced glass of wine I don't want to find out after the fact that I'm there on the wrong day. I'll just go somewhere I know there are happy hour drinks and a set menu of food every day.

We’ve been to Meet in Paris on several occasions. Always a hit or miss.

I understand that with COVID things are more complicated but the service should always be stellar.

The Oysters were bland, the sea bass was delicious but extremely oily.

We ordered an expensive bottle of wine and our glasses were removed from the table without having finished it. That was the most upsetting part.

The wine we originally ordered was out of stock (understandably so) and we were told the second option, a $9 premium would be price matched. That didn’t happen.

We have wanted to always support this restraint but I think this will be the last time unfortunately. The place is nice and the ambiance is nice but the service and food quality are just not there.

Wish them the best.

Love their new outdoor tenting area for Covid. We were very spaced out from other guests but the service and quality of the food was still amazing.

Food was okay. Service could be better as we saw a nearby table with guests get more attention in service than us. It wasn’t that busy and we were sitting right near the host. My wife got this vibe that we didn’t feel welcomed as we had to ask for certain things while we saw other tables being asked if they needed anything.

The food was good. It did take a long time for the food to arrive at out table. I'm not sure if it was because of Valentine's rush. Overall I would recommend this restaurant.

Great outdoor patio-and very socially distanced. Hot tip - get there around five and order off of Happy Hour menu until 6. Escargot is amazing ...then onto the steak frites and Beef Bourgogne. Don’t forget the chocolate cake, recipe made by the owner’s grandmother. Large parking garage nearby. I’ve been out twice in quarantine and both times it has been here💕

This is very nice French bistro that's opened up outdoor dining -- a great place to go in sunny weather. The menu has a good range of choices from typical bistro fare (crepe, ratatouille) to some Cali-influenced offerings like tacos and frittata.

However, continue to be disappointed in the food -- the coffee arrives cold, the eggs benedict is thin on English muffin, ham (paper thin!), and sauce. I had mussels last time, and they were overcooked and tiny. Strongly suggest the management pay more attention to the food. Right now, this is a good spot for drinks and appetizers.

As a regular lunchtime customer, this was my first dinner experience at Meet in Paris. The service and food were excellent. We ended up being early for our reservation and they were able to accommodate. Highly recommend this restaurant!

It was nice birthday dinner. Despite being chilly outside it was very comfortable under the tent.
Food was good except that the server was a little robotic and not very friendly did not give out food tips or suggestions.
But overall it was a pleasant night.
Thank you “Meet me in Paris “!

The service time was long. I was there over 20 minutes before I saw my waiter. I got the moules frites with the Meet in Paris sauce. The fries were cold and I would go with a different sauce next time. The pear 75 drink was very good.

Overall, service was decent but my water cup was only refilled once during the 3.5 hours we were there! We decided to go on the all-you-can-eat mussels night. Out of the seven different flavours I've tried, there were no standouts - fairly mild in flavour which is disappointing though the seafood was fresh! Tables and chairs are extremely small and uncomfortable.

The dessert crêpe was from a pre-package crêpe and not made on the premise...quite shocking for a French restaurant. This is probably the reason why I only go to this restaurant once every other year - most restaurants in Culver City (like Pasadena) are typically trendy restaurants that cater to the general public with mediocre taste. Unfortunately, mediocrity has become a standard for most restaurants. Why be great when there's no demand for it???
